Weigh-ins for Saturday’s UFC 190 event went down earlier today from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and FightLine has complete results.

In the main event, Ronda Rousey defends her bantamweight title against Bethe Correia. Rousey weighed in at 135 pounds, while the unbeaten Correia came in at 134.

Rousey immediately lost her smile and got in the face of Correia after weighing in. The Brazilian challenger talked to her the entire staredown and Rousey didn’t blink.

Light heavyweights Mauricio “Shogun” Rua and Antonio Rogerio Nogueira square off in the co-main event, while Ultimate Fighter: Brazil 4 winners are crowned in the lightweight and bantamweight divisions. Both Rua and Nogueira weighed in at 206 pounds for their rematch.

Clint Hester was the lone fighter to miss weight, coming in less than a pound over for his middleweight contest with Vitor Miranda. He’ll have an hour to cut weight and make 186.

UFC female bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey already has the quickest championship victory to her credit inside the Octagon.

To go along with that 14-second record-breaking performance, “Rowdy” also has a 16-second win on her resume.

So, what can the former bronze medalist from the Olympics do for an encore to those impressive feats? She explained during a recent appearance on “UFC Tonight” to promote her UFC 190 fight vs. Bethe Correia.

“With me winning in the most fantastical way,” she said. “I want fans to go ‘Wow, what just happened there? I want to watch it all over again.’ I only plan the first exchange and then just go with it, so (how it actually ends) your guess is as good as mine.”

Rousey also said that her mother wants her to go for a quick finish vs. Correia, who has sparked quite the feud between the two sides with comments relating to suicide and Rousey’s decisions.

“I explained to my mom I’m actually being more risky if I go for a fast finish,” she said. “Going more slowly would be the safer way to win.”

Following wins over Cat Zingano, Alexis Davis, Sara McMann and Miesha Tate in dominant fashion, Rousey heads into the title fight an overwhelming favorite. Despite that, though, she remains focused on her ultimate career goal.

“In the grand goal, I’m not the favorite,” she explained. “I wan tot be one of the most dominant fighters who’ve ever lived and retire undefeated.

“I’m an underdog in that.”

FightLine will have complete coverage this Saturday night of all the action from UFC 190, including live and free play-by-play.

Dan Hardy and John Gooden offer up insight and thoughts for Saturday night’s main event at UFC 190 between Ronda Rousey and Bethe Correia in the latest edition of “Inside the Octagon.”


Jake Shields is a former Strikeforce champion and title contender when he was in the UFC.

This Saturday night, Shields will take on Rousimar Palhares for World Series of Fighting welterweight gold.

Shields (31-7-1) is a perfect 2-0 since coming over to the WSOF, scoring first round finishes vs. Brian Foster and Ryan Ford. In all, Shields has 12 submission wins to his credit – and would like nothing more than making Palhares No. 13.

“If I have it I’m going to try and break it,” said Shields, during a recent interview with Submission Radio, regarding a submission attempt on Palhares. “I mean obviously if he taps I’m gonna stop. I’m not gonna risk getting suspended over something stupid like that, but I’m definitely gonna grab it try to rip anything I get.”

Palhares has made headlines several times after not releasing submission attempts after the fighter had tapped. That includes a win over Mike Pierce that led to his 2013 release from the UFC.

A veteran of the sport, Shields isn’t buying the “misunderstood” claim made by Palhares regarding the submission holds.

“I think he’s a really bad person who enjoys hurting people, or he’s really stupid,” he said. “There’s no way that he just, you know, he’d have to be really stupid to not understand that he holds a submission too long. We’re submission guys, that’s what we do. We train all the time, we’re used to people tapping in training. He’s been hurting people in training as well.”

Dominick Cruz was the first fighter to wear the UFC bantamweight title.

Current champion T.J. Dillashaw wants to defend his 135-pound title against Cruz – assuming “The Dominator” can stay healthy.

Cruz was stripped of the title after suffering back-to-back knee injuries. He is currently sidelined once again, but is anticipating a return either late in 2015 or early in 2016.

Dillashaw scored his second title defense with a fourth round TKO victory over Renan Barao at UFC on FOX 16 over the weekend. He won the belt by stopping Barao last year and defended it vs. Joe Soto.

“If he stays healthy (I want to face Cruz),” said Dillashaw, during the post-fight show after his recent win. “I don’t know if he can. Come on Dominick, let’s get after it.

“He used to be the champ.”

The Team Alpha Male fighter used an incredible offensive attack to best Barao, peppering him with shots. He ended the bout with a flurry early in the fourth.

“Our plan was don’t try to out-perform yourself,” he said. “We worked on some things that needed to be tightened up. We wanted to be fast and first.”

While Barao started to fatigue from the back-and-forth stand-up affair, Dillashaw never did.

“My cardio is awesome,” he said. “I have confidence being the champion. You go in there with the idea you can’t lose and you believe in yourself.”

Having dispatched Barao twice now, Dillashaw said “peace out. I don’t have to deal with him for a while.”
